Undergrad: 1995 (Hardin-Simmons)

Scott Schochler enters his second year as head men's and women's cross country coach after spending three seasons at the helm of the Diboll High School (Texas) cross country and track and field programs.

For the last three years, Schochler has served as the head coach at Diboll High School, leading both cross country programs in addition to the girl's track and field team. During his time with the Jacks, Schochler coached three state qualifiers and 38 regional qualifiers while earning one district team championship and guiding 21 individuals to district championships.

Prior to his stop in Texas, Schochler served as the head boy's and girl's track and field coach at Orofino High School, located on the outskirts of Lewiston, Idaho. In almost a decade on the coaching staff of the Maniacs, Schochler coached 15 individual state champions while his athletes set two Idaho state records.

No stranger to the Sooner Athletic Conference, Schochler participated on the Bison's cross country team in addition to landing a fifth-place finish at the 1991 SAC Tournament Meet as a member of the OBU track and field team. He would later compete at the NAIA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Stephenville, Texas, landing a No. 29 finish in the marathon. While Schochler's sophomore season was marred with injury, he later transferred to Hardin-Simmons (Texas) for his final two collegiate years where he organized a cross country club, which he coached in addition to serving as a participant.

A USATF Level I certified coach, Schochler graduated in 1995 from Hardin-Simmons University, where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Physical Education.

Schochler and his wife, Dr. Amy Schochler, currently reside in Siloam Springs with their two daughters, Vivian and Leahla.
